As I’m recording this, I have my holiday candle burning, my kids hopped up on Christmas cookie sugar, and I’m struggling to find a way to hide Christmas presents from my husband before being able to wrap them. If you’re listening to this way later, and you haven’t already looked at the title of this episode, get ready for a throwback to what kids and retailers call The Most Wonderful Time of the Year.

When I first started this podcast back in 2016, I did an episode like this and I liked it a lot, and it’s a nice way to cap off the year, since I’ll be taking a winter break with the show until the new year.

You’re listening to The Story Behind: The Extraordinary History of the Ordinary. I’m your host, Emily Prokop, and this is The Story Behind Christmas Traditions: Part 2.
